The duo were joined in the studio by Greer McGettrick , who contributed backing vocals on several songs, and saxophonists Casafi and Mikal Cronin. Regarding the recording process Dwyer stated: "Me and Chris worked on it together. I wrote a bunch of demos and then brought them to him. We recorded in a studio in Sacramento, an old banana-ripening warehouse.
He plays drums and we switch instruments throughout. We recorded fifteen songs and then cut back. Regardless of what people might think about my output, I've tried to be a little bit better at editing.

The various sides of Thee Oh Sees — the world-beatingly loud'n'fast live garage band ; the swirlier, prettier home-taped psych-pop solo project; the synth-kraut-spacerock explorers — are comprehensively represented on Drop, and in songs such as Encrypted Bounce a sleek, pulsing rocker with a sharp, sour tang , Put Some Reverb On My Brother a playful psychedelic colour-riot and Transparent World a woozy, alien cloud of melodious drones , Dwyer sounds on the creative form of his life.
